: mike, thank you for being here. good to speak with you. mike baker. connell: president obama will deliver a statement at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. one of the questions people have brought up after the bombing yesterday and we will start to get into this today and the coming days, what if any impact they will have going forward on our economy. dagen: peter barnes has much more on this. peter: we looked at research reports on the impact of attacks of 9/11 back in 2001. the current economy has shown some softness recently in job creation and retail sales. any hits to consumer confidence may make things worse. two economists that i have talked to this morning do not think it will get too bad. the 9/11 attacks were targeted for the financial systems. consumer confidence rose sharply after the 9/11 attacks. experiencing the biggest monthly drop in a decade. the attacks caused more than 400 mass layoffs and displaced 130,000 workers. industrial production fell back then. the unemployment rate jumped more than a half a percentage point. we were already in a recession that september. w

. >> and president obama brought the families of victims from an emotional and rousing speech. >> i'm here to greet the american people with a simple message. every one of us has been touched by this attack on your beloved city. every one of us stands with you. because, after all, it's our beloved city, too. boston may be your hometown, but we claim it, too. i know this because there's a piece of boston in me. you welcomed me as a young law student across the river. welcomed michelle, too. you welcomed me -- you welcomed me during a convention when i was still a state senator and very few people could pronounce my name right. like you, michelle and i have walked these streets. like you, we know these neighborhoods. like you, in this moment of grief, we join you in saying, boston, you're my home. for millions of us, what happened on monday is personal. our prayers are with the injured. so many wounded. some gravely. from their beds, some are surely watching us gather here today. if you are, know this. as you begin this long journey of recovery, your city is with y you, your commonwealth is with you,
you think, why you think this and they say they never got a response. >> the obama administration has okayed the suspension of the suspect's miranda rights. is that a temporary suspension? >> reporter: yes, by law it is. it's called the public safety exception to the miranda rule. normally you have to tell someone they have a right to remain silent and if you don't, then you can't use anything they tell you in court. so that's why the miranda warning is given. but there is an exception. you don't have to do it if there's a possible threat to public safety. and here obviously there's a concern about whether there are potential accomplices. investigators say they haven't found any. or other explosives. they say they haven't found any of those either but that's what they want to ask him. and this exception probably begins to expire the moment you invoke it so it's probably no good for more than a day or two but nonetheless they can do that. afterwards they'll have to give him his miranda warning and say whether he'll continue to answer questions. the justice department says even in very
are being security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try the younger brother in federal court and that no options were considered. >> this is a matter that's decided by the department of justice and the attorney general, obviously at the top, the whole national security team supports this decision. >> military trial was not an option in this case because the 19-year-old is an american citizen. even if it provided more information about his brother who was killed last week. shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. catherine, thank you. that criminal complaint details the suspect's serious injuries. gunshot wounds to the head, the throat, the legs, and the hand. investigators say it appears the suspect shot himself as swat teams closed. in a possible attempt to kill himself they say. today, officers said he was in very bad shape by the time they took him down. >> moving up to the boat, he was actually laying down on the side of the boat.
that comes across the border with biometric data and can't get obama care so they can work and pay taxes but never get medicaid. you're seeing him going hat in hand trying to sell his bill as even more draconian and far right. we're going to electrify the whole southern border, i suppose, or whatever it is they want. just to get them to pass something that would help the republican party because it would make them less toxic to latino voters. >> joy reid and dana milbank, who i believe was recommending not clitoridectomy, but the removal of the tongue for ann coulter. thank you very much. >> thank you, doctor. >>> as we go to break, new video just in featuring the mother of the bombing suspects, again, insistent that her sons are innocent. >> what happened is a terrible thing. but i know that my kids have nothing to do with this. i know it.
